This presentation from Peter Davidson, Executive Director of the Tank Storage Association, will provide advice for senior managers to ensure that risks are being managed and minimised. In managing cyber security risks, businesses will also reduce risk to commercial activities and protect their reputation.

The presentation will cover:

• Governance: roles and responsibilities, reporting, accountability, organisation structure, vision and culture
• Staff competencies: knowledge, skills and experience
• Management system documentation: letting people know what is required
• Audit of management systems and technical aspects, and monitoring of key performance indicators: making sure procedures and countermeasures keep working
• Managing supply chain risk

The presentation will align closely with the soon to be published “
Chemical and Downstream Oil Industries Forum Guidance on Cyber Security for Senior Managers”.
